Author and storyteller Itah Sadu, along with special guests Sandra Whiting and Sojourner San Vicente, share the rich oral traditions of the Caribbean, Africa and North America. Canadian born, Itah was raised in Barbados, and upon returning to Canada studied political science at York University. Often addressing issues such as racism and equity, Itah appears regularly on television and presents and facilitates storytelling and writing workshops for both children and adults. Itah is also a popular keynote speaker. Her bestselling children's books include Christopher Please Clean Up Your Room, Name Calling, How The Coconut Got Its Face, Christopher Changes His Name and A Touch of the Zebra. Itah’s downtown Toronto bookstore, A Different Booklist, features writers from the Caribbean and the African Diaspora.
